Our sponsor this week is LETRASET and there is a pack of Promarkers on offer to our winner.
So, here's my offering this week. Aren't these hippo's just the mutts nuts? You can find them at PHINDY'S PLACE along with some other fab digi images.
I have known this song for many a year so I wanted to use it for my DT card, but it took me hours to track down a hippo image so I was well chuffed when I found this. They are coloured with my Promarkers of course and I used my Robo to cut the snowflakes, then coloured them with my Promarkers, added a bit of glitter and bead spacers for the centres which I found buried in my old stash again. The border is cut with an EK success punch 'Swirl' and the ribbon, which happily matches the pattern on her dress was in my stash. The background is embossed in my bug using a Papermania folder and that's about it really as I wanted it left fairly simple.
Now, the song. How many of you know it?
It's called 'I WANT A HIPPOPOTAMUS FOR CHRISTMAS' an oldie, but a goodie, lol. You can read the words and have a listen HERE. I thought this image suited as either he or she got what they wanted, hence dancing for joy. Ha, ha. I hope you like it.
